Everyone was so surprised that Santa popped by and he said hello to everyone through the window, he left us lots of presents! It was a little sad that he couldn't come inside to meet everyone but not to worry because Santa had already thought about that, he recorded a Happy Christmas message which we all watched. Thank you Santa! Hopefully we will get to meet you next year.

Once upon a time by John Prater ... (22nd Feb - 5th March)
We are enjoying listening to the story 'Once upon a time', this book is great for helping us to extend our imaginations. This story follows a little boy as he watches his dad go off to work and then he eagerly awaits for his return. It's very dull for the little boy who lives in the countryside, with just his mum and cat for company. Nothing much happens and no one comes by, or so he thought ...
This story has inspired lots of role play, we especially enjoyed acting out the Three little pigs story, building homes for them and designing a home for them so that the big hungry wolf won't eat them all up!!
World Book Day ... (04/03/21)
To celebrate World Book Day everyone dressed in rainbow colours, and throughout the day we joined in with lots of rainbow activities and listened to our favourite stories ...
